Secrets to Success Nottingham — with Eversheds Sutherland, Irwin Mitchell, Pinsent Masons and ULaw

Thursday 28 November at ULaw Nottingham; open to all students

Legal Cheek is coming to Nottingham for the latest in its series of Secrets to Success events — in association with The University of Law (ULaw) — to help students boost their commercial awareness as they apply for vacation schemes and training contracts.

The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 28 November 2019 at ULaw’s new Nottingham campus and features a panel of lawyers from Eversheds Sutherland, Irwin Mitchell, Pinsent Masons and ULaw.

On the agenda will be key topical issues including the turning economic cycle, Brexit, US-China trade tension, technological disruption and the green economy. How will developments in these areas affect law firms, and what associated changes can we expect in the legal market?

Date: Thursday 28 November 2019
Time: 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: ULaw, Nottingham
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers

Rachel Cooper, legal director in Eversheds Sutherland’s commercial group;
Emma Rush, partner in Irwin Mitchell’s medical negligence team in Birmingham;
Dawn Kirby, future trainee solicitor at Pinsent Masons, who has recently changed careers after working for over a decade as a journalist;
Andy Matthews, dean of ULaw Nottingham, and former Midlands managing partner of Gateley.

The speakers will also share the secrets to their own success, telling the stories of their own career journeys, while advising students on how they can best position themselves to obtain training contracts with leading firms.

After the Question Time-style discussion, which will be chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, there will be drinks and networking with the speakers and a collection of the firms’ trainees and members of their graduate recruitment teams.
